PVCu systems innovator Deceuninck, supported by hardware partner VBH, recently hosted its customer golf day at the prestigious Woburn Golf Club.
Billed as the Deceuninck Championship Golf Experience, around 90 of the industry’s keenest golfers arrived for breakfast and a spot of driving and putting practice before setting off to the four corners of the Duke’s course for a shotgun start.
On a warm July day the golfers found the beautiful but narrow pine, chestnut and silver birch lined fairways to be a real challenge. The popular opinion of the golfers as they hit the 19th hole was that it was a real privilege to play Woburn, but some of their golf didn’t always match the setting! We’re sure most players were simply being modest but the fact that the club had been used for British Open qualifying just a couple of weeks before is proof of the testing nature of this par 72 course.
After a sumptuous three course dinner, a raffle and auction were held to raise much needed funds for the GM Fundraising charity, which does excellent work in supporting Hope House Children’s Hospices.
Raffle prizes included an array of golf clothing and equipment donated by Deceuninck and a pair of Club Wembley tickets to August’s Community Shield football match donated by VBH. Woburn Golf Club themselves donated a golf package for rounds on all three of its courses. This very special prize was auctioned off and raised almost £1000 for the charity.
All in all a great day was had by all involved, and our big hearted industry proved again that relationships can be built and cemented whilst having a great time and helping out some very worthwhile causes.
